After sitting in the security bin and getting successfully through security (no small feat with mounds of baby gear)Annikah decided to wreak havoc on the plane.
Here is a brief summary of her recommendations for a fun & fabulous (for her) flight:
*be completely wired and refuse to sleep
*instead of sleeping jump from seat to seat, climb under the seats, and then repeatedly jump on the seats
*bang on tray table and when that gets old (approximately 3 minutes later): climb and sit on it
*grab and spill every beverage within your reach
*watch baby video for about 10 minutes on Papa’s laptop and fuss when it goes off repeatedly because YOU bang the keys
*pull window shade down then put it up (repeat 489 times or until person behind you actually feels sorry for us)
*eat various crackers and other snacks being sure to leave crumbs and “goo” everywhere
*cry because you cannot run amok down the aisle harassing perfect strangers
*throw pacifier (on the floor and at people)
*finally fall asleep 30 seconds before landing (and wake up as soon as I move totalling a nap of about 8 minutes)
*kiss those who are nice enough (or suckers enough) to put up with your shenanigans (Ok, this one is pretty darn cute)
We had a great trip and when I am a bit more rested I shall update you all more. But in case anyone had a flight soon I wanted to throw out Annikah’s advice! I remember a time when I used to read my book and enjoy my 2 hours of flight time, those days, like peeing alone are far gone.
